Decades of Experience at Your Service

Assay Automation

Consumable designs can often translate complex, multi-step bench assays into one or two user steps, which enables your device to meet stringent user requirements or be granted a CLIA waiver. Expertise in high-volume manufacturing and DFM (design for manufacturing) is a core capability, enabling the development of low-cost, high-quality, market-ready designs.

Common system requirements include:


  • Sample collection
  • Plasma separation
  • RNA/DNA purification
  • Cell lysis
  • Fluid metering/de-bubbling
  • Fluid storage, mixing and delivery
  • Magnetic bead handling
  • Optical detection
  • PCR reactions
  • Lyophilized reagent handling
  • Cell culture
  • Blister pack design and integration
  • High pressure (>20psi) and vacuum capabilities
